Tomato, arugula & ricotta salata stuffed portobellos

So apparently April is fresh Florida tomato month.

Make that reason #456098567 why we should’ve never moved back to NY from Florida.

But since we did, April also marks approximately 6 months since I’ve bitten into a decent tomato. So you can probably imagine my reaction when asked to partner with Florida Tomatoes to come up with a recipe highlighting them.

Um, yes please.

I thought about roasting them, pureeing them, somehow turning them into a dessert even, but at the end of the day, I just got really excited about the possibility of a fresh tomato that actually tasted good and didn’t travel 5,000 miles to get to my kitchen.

So I went with simple. Dressed with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar,  stuffed inside a roasted portobello mushroom and topped with some sharp ricotta salata.

It was like I time warped into August through a tomato. If only I could somehow figure out how to do that with this weather…

    I need to use portobello mushrooms more. I used button mushrooms all the time but never remember to think to buy portobello. This recipe looks great!

    I can’t wait for tomatoes to start popping up at the famers markets here! Although with the weather we’ve been having (wtf!), I doubt it’ll be soon!

    Love the ricotta salata in this – so unique!

    Great recipe!! I am in the opposite boat, having moved from NY to CA last month I am realizing just how much I was missing out on every winter. It still hasn’t totally sunk in that I am going to be able to have a garden ALL year long.
